all day unloading lorries & getting cases up stairs. There is more room here than in Alexandria & the mess & quarters are much more comfortable. The hours of toil have been altered from 8.30 to 1, & from 5 to 7.30. with the afternoons free for sport.
Work has increased a great deal Casualties have been coming in freely & we have also had to prepare copies of nominal rolls so have had to work extra hours for fortnight or more. I have visited several of my friends. Called on Mrs Warner & Mrs Rice & have also been out to Briggs several times. The first 2 or 3 Sundays we had off, but now we have to work on Sunday mornings, which none of us like a bit. However it gives us a chance to deal with our private letters.
I go out to the 14th AGH a good deal as quite number of 6th LH boys are in there wounded & sick & I got full accounts of all the recent fighting.
